Hello everyone. Today I bring you a tree house, not for the sims, but for the garden gnomes in your sims' backyards. It's a small piece of heaven where the gnomes can live happily, undisturbed by anyone.They can plant and harvest vegetables, gather mushrooms, pick apples, eat berries, and for those with seasons installed, even fish in the nearby pond. There's plenty of room even for a big family, kitchen with dinign and living room on the first floor, master bedroom and bathroom on second floor,and kids bedroom and another bathroom on third floor. If need be, fourth floor can also be made livable. Well, hope you like it! Enjoy!

I downloaded the lot and installed it in my game, but I can't find it in the housing bin. Is this compatible with nightlife and open for business or am I just missing something?
